MIAMI — The Spanish-language broadcast TV network known for its prime-time variety program hosted by a man in a clown suit, a host of originally produced reality competition shows, and weekday newscasts at 5:30pm and 10:30pm will soon return to Miami after a six-month absence.
RBR+TVBR has confirmed that LBI Media (a.k.a. Liberman Broadcasting), the owner of Estrella TV, has acquired a full-power TV station in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale DMA. This station will serve as the new, and bigger, home for Estrella TV.
This results in a perhaps cloudy South Florida future for another Spanish-language TV network — one that Philip A. Falcone‘s HC2 Holdings acquired just weeks ago.
